A careless Melbourne road user has caused an uproar online after he was spotted driving with his trailer gate open.

An astute member of the public spotted the mistake and took a picture of the car stopped at the traffic lights.

The picture shows a black four-wheel drive vehicle towing a refrigerator in a large trailer with an open gate.

The photo was then uploaded to a Facebook page dedicated to calling out “bad drivers and parkers” in the Melbourne area.

The photo was captioned: “Let’s play… what’s wrong with this photo?”

Some internet users played along, expressing relief that the mistake wasn’t worse.

“God!” one commenter said: “Thank goodness the fridge is tied up.”

Unfortunately for the person who posted the photo, many other people saw a different problem with it and were more than happy to call it out.

“You and your passenger – that’s what’s wrong with this photo,” someone commented.

“Plenty of room to stop next to them and let them know, but I decided to stay, take a photo, edit the photo and post it on social media.”

Others also poured in, blaming the uploader for their inaction in the situation.

“What’s bad is the fact that people just take pictures and post them on social media and just drive by without giving them a curtsy (further) to let them know something is wrong, and then something happens on the road and causes an accident ,” someone commented.

The unexpected backlash prompted the user to delete the post from Facebook.

Drivers in Victoria with unsecured loads could face thousands of dollars in fines, while anyone using the internet faces potentially ruthless enforcement.
